Perry Mason, S.7, Ep. 28. “The Case Of The Drifting Dropout” First broadcast May 7, 1964. This was a later story not based on an Erle Stanley Gardner novel, but the show had good writers. A variety of interesting faces: longtime movie supporting actors Vaughn Taylor, Malcolm Atterbury, and film noir regular Ted de Corsia. Also in the cast is Neil Hamilton, who about a year and a half later would start a run as Commissioner Gordon on the 1966 “Batman” series and Cynthia Pepper, who had already had her own one season TV series, “Margie,” during the 1961-62 season. Pepper was an early actress crush for many male adolescents of the time, including me.
